Many taxpayers just want to know what type of information is in their IRS/State file without fear of drawing attention to them. Congress passed legislation (FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT) that requires government agencies including the IRS/State, to disclose such information when requested.


  • Freedom of Information documents can also be used to explain why, how, when and where a taxpayer’s IRS/State problems started.
  • Having this information is helpful as it discloses the IRS/State information used to assess taxes, penalties and interest against the taxpayer.
  • Any taxpayer having difficulty in sorting out what the IRS/State is doing to them should consider using the FREEDOM OF INFORMATON ACT to obtain their IRS/State files.
  • Often the information you receive can help the taxpayer better understand their IRS/State problems.
